Folding@Home is a LARGE GRID COMPUTING effort. Presently over 100,000 computers and over 400,000 people have contributed. Present speed is approximately 173Teraflops.
Completely nonprofit and totally for humanities benefit. Join the team, it's kind of fun. :-D

Seems other people/sites can claim they have great community spirit.

"priyajeet" started a team to do protein folding for humanities benefit to have this community recognized. We're team 40051 at <A HREF="http://folding.stanford.edu" target="_new">http://folding.stanford.edu</A>and we could use a little of your help.

Update 2004/12/11
==================

This week we added a bunch of new members to the team.
Welcome and thanks for contributions to date.
Carey........12.11.04
xponchox.....12.10.04
wuzy.........12.08.04
Brendan_Roy_Wood 12.07.04
BossHoss.....12.06.04
james........12.05.04

We continue to make decent progress through the ranks. Our weekly production is not large when we compare to the top 200 or 300. Still, we're moving up the ranks at a more than repectable pace. Last week we cracked the 800 barrier. This week we're down around 720 and in a couple of days we should crack 700.

Right above us are the "Super Poop Heads" we really want to get over them soon. Further ahead we have the "Industrial Tire Group" and what they're doing with all this computing horsepower I don't know.

Behind us, "Dalhousie" (University) is hot on our tails. Unless we get some more help, it looks like they're going to pass us around Xmas time. Nice for them, not so wonderful for us. Production rates seem to be sliping very slightly even though we have added a few more users.

Hoping to see ur contributions soon.

bah you guys have got the wrong idea. As soon as me and my buddies find ET with seti at home they'll come here, cure cancer, and then they'll travel into the future and buy us each 50thz amd cpus, not intel ones because even tho they will at that time run at 100thz they will melt any heatsink you put on them and run slightly slower than the amd chips. so run SETI cuz I need a new proc.

Just a bit of a bump...

I must admit to feeling very suprised I'm still in the top 3. I would have thought a lot of the more hardcore among us would be all over this sort of thing. I guess they must be either folding for different teams (turncoats!), or contributing to a different grid computing project.

I might install the client on the computers of some of the more stupid people at work, as they won't notice. :wink:

I'll join with the others in thanking the newcomers, and calling for those who haven't yet joined to show a little community spirit, and help the team out!

You're not using your CPU much when you're downloading porn torrents all night you know.. :evil:

I thought I would be rackin up the WUs w/ the fah console on my 3.06ghz desktop, 1.8ghz dothan laptop, 2 dual PIII550s, and a dual 2.4ghz xeon but I guess that ain't enough, lol. That fah console doesn't seem to have very good or any multithreading support. My 3.06ghz machine folds faster than all the rest, I figured the dual 2.4ghz xeon would. Oh well... I'll just stop complainin and keep foldin :)

I'm poor! I only run my computer for the amount of time I plan to use it, multitask to get everything done at once, and shut it down. Saves electricity compared to running it while doing nothing important.

Log:

As previously mentioned, we've broken the 700 barrier. That is a pretty good pace and all the new joiners have made this happen lots faster. Dalhousie University continues to creep up on our backsides but we've put off their takeover for at least another month.

We've gone and ripped the "clownz.com" a new smile and team "Go-Linux" is now gone and drifted into the sunset. "Racing Room 1" never got off the starting line and "Team Rocket" has been left on the launching pad. And while "Singer High School" got the cold shoulder we gave "CoolHand" a cold slap.

Looking ahead, the competition is getting serious. Just above us is "Hovis Lab @ Perdue" and not far ahead we see we can eat "Rice University". There is also "Greece" near some "Bumms" and we're going to slide by these guys soon.


Welcome:

error_911 and Sparky853 have contributed some massive 1st work units that have given us a real boost this weekend. Keep them comming guys!


Kudos:
People reaching milestone in the past 7 days.

Nice seasonal Logo, BTW. :smile:

10K for me! w00t! or something. :eek:

My productivity will probably drop now as I'm off work for a couple weeks, so my PCs at work (a P4 2.8C @ ~3.25, and a Duron 1.6) will probably be out of the game for that time, and my home PC (2.2Ghz T-bred B AXP) will not be on as permanently as it would be were I here. Depends on my landlord buddy as to how much use he makes of it.

I'm off to see my folks in South Africa for Christmas in the sun :cool: , in case anyone's remotely interested as to where I'm going.

Argh ! My score is being hit hard, had to RMA one of my 40GB Maxtor HDD that crapped on me this weekend, thing is, it was on a RAID-0 array =(

Now I am back in the race, RAID-1 this time, if I can get a bunch of 13xx in a row, i'll enjoy a 10 points/hour production. My Mobile Barton @ 2.6 can fold one of those in 30 hours for 316-320 points but Stanford's has been handing out a lot of 1280s lately, they require 15 hours of work for a mere 76 points, that's only 5 points/hours !

Have any of you guys figured a way to somehow force the download of particularly productive protein out of the bunch ?

Sid,

Looks like "HuH" is on your case. Going to pass you real soon (like today). Seriously though, looks like there could be some serious competition going to happen soon.

"Huh" has the highest average production and is climbing the ladder reptty fast. "Chipdeath" is moving on up too. He's got a lead but it is not insurmountable. "sjonnie" is so far ahead of the rest of the pack that he can sustain top dog position for a long time.

"Folken" just dropped a couple of workunits worth a bundl and his average is moving up as well as his position. "James" is working on becomming a contender.

I wonder if I should get into the race. Hehe, maybe at Xmas I'll see what I can crank out.
========================================================
Be on the Lookout

"@ease" is in sight .. they seem to be hanging close to the "Naval Ordnance Test Unit".. buddies I guess. "Carnegie Mellon University" is going to get stomped!!!

Finally finished my first unit..YEAH. Only took a week.

not sure how much I'll contribut this week...On a business trip to Fort Smith, Arkansas, so my laptop isn't always able to run F@H, but I'll do my best :smile:

Keep up the good work!!

Sparky,

Thank you for contributing what u can. I think that's the right attitude.

Hmm, competition can be fun if we don't take the results too seriously though.

See you when u get back Sparky and have a nice trip!

You spoke to soon. I think that you are moving up faster than anyone now.

Oh, shake, shake, shake - shake, shake, shake
Shake your booty, shake your booty, wow wow, yeah!
Right on, had no choice but to take another pair of 6E040L0 (40GB 7200RPM) to replace my dead ones, the store manager confessed that he had to deal with a lot of RMA from that batch, worst thing is that the ones that I just RMAed were replacements from another pair that crapped on me back in April

Lesson learned, I'll never buy Maxtor products ever again !

I'll prolly grab a pair of Raptors after the holidays, set the Maxtors in a RAID-1 array for *cough*unreliable*cough* storage and forget 'bout 'em...

I'm sure that my stuff will be safer on a WD RAID-0 array since every single Maxtors I had (two pairs) gave up the ghost within the same week/weekend.

Download <A HREF="http://www.maxtor.com/portal/site/Maxtor/menuitem.3c67e325e0a6b1f6294198b091346068/?channelpath=/en_us/Support/Software%20Downloads/ATA%20Hard%20Drives&downloadID=22" target="_new">Powermax 4.09</A> and make a boot(y) disk, you'll be needing it soon enough...

Hey guy's, im not sure why this is making such a big difference but trust me when I say that it is. When I run my system at stock speed P4 3.0e it takes forever. When I up it to 3.3 it decreases the time for a WU to finish at a much faster rate. I know that it stands to reason that a 10% - 12% increase in CPU speed would also increase the folding speed, but it is increasing alot more than 10% - 12%. I dont know how much faster it is yet, but its more like 20%.
